Qore Episode 25: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Green Day Rock Band, PixelJunk Shooter 2, Clash of the Titans

Lara Croft is back, and this time she’s joined by a fierce Mayan warrior named Totec. The Guardian of Light is a new, multiplayer co-op title coming to the PlayStation Network. Qore Host Veronica Belmont visited developer Crystal Dynamics to bring you up-to-date on Lara’s action-packed, puzzle-solving adventure…a departure from the Tomb Raider series.

It’s hard to believe 16 years ago Green Day achieved mainstream success with the release of Dookie, and today they’ve got a Broadway musical and their own version of Rock Band. Qore caught up with Billie Joe, Tre, and Mike in advance of the release of Harmonix’s Green Day Rock Band, which features — for the first time — new motion-capture technology of the power punk trio to bring their live stage performances to life.

Kyoto-based Q-Games is famous for its PixelJunk series of PSN exclusives, which includes PixelJunk Racers, PixelJunk Monsters, PixelJunk Eden, and PixelJunk Shooter. Veronica previews the upcoming PixelJunk Shooter 2 and PixelJunk Racers: 2nd Lap, and talks with company president Dylan Cuthbert about their special brand of 2D creative magic.

With Greek mythology popping up everywhere in pop culture, Audrey Cleo visits Game Republic in Japan for a preview of Clash of the Titans. This is the studio behind the PS3 games Folklore and Genji: Days of the Blade, and they’re looking to recreate the look and feel of the film while adding all-new creatures and environments.

All subscribers can download the demoscene title “detuned” for free, and all purchasers will have access to a Clash of the Titans PS3 theme. As usual, Audrey has a rundown of the latest Blu-ray releases, and this month we spotlight our first “Geek Hero”, Gary Whitta—a PC magazine editor turned Hollywood screenwriter. Green Day fans can test their knowledge in the “Name That Tune” mini-game, and don’t forget to try the Lara Croft-themed memory match puzzles to unlock Veronica’s outtake videos.

Look for Episode 25 tomorrow on the PlayStation Store update.

Qore was a full year of nothing, full on rubbish, I wish I saved the money as it would have been better spent at the beer store. The “free”-paid for- downloadable content each month was worthless and you know it was. Audio levels in the program are always way off everything else on the HDD, Audio needs levels set before export- I found the acting from the cast is poor at best, not to mention the camera angles are old school and full of constant centeritis. even the editing is pedestrian level and the montage selections need to reflect actual game play instead of implied game excitement.
Just kick down the sell letters a notch and bring on the real hard core info and the odd usefull download item, that is probably everything most people want from Qore anyway.
I guess all I wanted to say here is the content of my monthly Qore for the past year has been painfull to watch and seems to be sent to air wet. Qore gets two thumbs down from me Kevin. sorry
